‘Nigeria on autopilot’ – Rights group knocks Buhari as CBN Gov, Emefiele picks N100m APC form

The Human Rights Writers Association of Nigeria, HURIWA, has expressed disbelief that President Muhmadu Buhari permitted the Governor of Central Bank, Godwin Emefiele to join the 2023 presidential campaign while still in office.

Fresh reporters had revealed that the incumbent governor of the apex bank had secured the governing All Progressives Congress, APC, N100 million presidential nomination form on Friday.

Several concerned Nigerians, who were incensed by the action, had urged on the CBN governor to soon leave his job and focus on his presidential aspirations.

In an interview with reporters in Abuja, HURIWA’s national coordinator, Emmanuel Onwubiko, blamed the country’s leadership for the trend, saying Nigeria is on autopilot.

According to him, it is the first time in history that political appointees, particularly Ministers and the CBN Governor would be declaring to succeed their boss without considering resignation.

Onwubiko, who lamented the hardship Nigerians are going through at the moment, called on all citizens to wake-up from their slumber, saying the nation is about to collapse.

He said, “Nigerians are not really concerned about the political happenings in the country. What really matters to them now is how to put food on their table. It is a big mistake that citizens would be concerned with what to eat and not the quality of governance in their country.

“Has it ever happened that a Minister of the Federal Republic of Nigeria publicity declared that he wants to succeed his boss and goes ahead to obtain a nomination form at a cost that has never been known in the world?

“First time in history, a Central Bank Governor who is supposed to be a regulator of financial institutions is actively involved in politics. The CBN governor is expected to be neutral in political affairs.

“How can the CBN governor purchase N100 million form to run for presidency and still be sitting in his position? This is the height of it, it is unacceptable.

“The people of Nigeria are paying you to stay in office and you are using their time to advance your personal political interest. This shows that Nigeria currently has no leader. The county is on autopilot.

“Let me call on Nigerians that the earlier we wake up from our slumber, the better, because the house is about to collapse on our head just because we are chasing food to eat”.
